JessiCurl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment

As we had the pleasure to attend Naturally Flyy Detroit's Anniversary Meet Up a few months back we had received a goodie bag with lots of freebies and this sample was one included! I have heard of Jessicurl time and time again just never ventured into trying any of their products so when i seen this and another Jessicurl sample was included i was stoked!

(Note the thickness of this conditioner)

Here is what it looked like as it was being applied to Diva R's hair while she was in the bath. I did shampoo her hair prior too and rinsed thoroughly then i wet her hair very well to ensure that her hair was drenched before applying this. 

See how thick it is.. I had to work at it to get it in which provided a great thick coverage throughout that i could see until it absorbed. Below you can see her hair after one cup of water was ran through her hair, some conditioner is still at the top of her hair. This could be a very good sign is what I'm thinking at this point...

 I left it in for 15 minutes (not knowing the specific time directions until i looked the information up there after). I don't feel leaving things in beyond this time frame is any different on her hair regardless of the product.The sample didn't have nearly any descriptive information on it, which i would have preferred.

The picture below on the left is of Diva R's freshly conditioned hair and this was taken right when she got dressed. See how elongated her curls look? Now glance at the picture below on the right and note how her curls have shrunk just that quick in the matter of a minute.

Intense pampering for dry hair

Product Story

It seems that every time I meet a Jessicurl customer, the most common thing they say to me is “I LOVE your Deep Conditioner!” They say it with a sincerity usually reserved for, oh, I don’t know, favorite ice cream flavors or designer shoes. I can tell how much they really mean it. And why shouldn’t they? It is INSANE how moisturizing this conditioner is. It used to be called “Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment” but then I heard from more and more curlies that they were using it every day, and some were even using it as a leave in. Who am I to limit how much you use your favorite conditioner, right? Thus, I dropped “Weekly” and just left it at Deep Conditioning Treatment. It’s thick, it’s rich, it’s moisturizing, it doesn’t build up – it really is the ideal formula for restoring moisture to dry curly hair. It also works great as a shaving cream – that even includes bald men! :) 

This comes in three scents: No fragrance, Citrus Lavender, and Island fantasy.
This also comes in a few more sizes being a 2oz or a gallon size!...

Water (Aqua) infused with Equisetum Maximum Lam (Horsetail), Mentha Piperita (Peppermint), Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary), Laurus Nobilis (Bay Leaf), Ocimum Basilicum (Basil), Arctium Lappa (Burdock Root), Althaea Officinalis (Marshmallow Root), Origanum Vulgare (Oregano), Cymbopogon Flexuosus (Lemongrass), Thymus Vulgaris (Thyme), Salvia Officinalis (Sage) and Urtica Dioica (Nettle); Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Soy Lecithin, Diazolidinyl Urea (and) Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate 


Apply to clean, wet hair, comb through and let it settle in for 30-60 minutes. For even more intense conditioning, use with heat, such as the Hair Therapy Wrap. Rinse and style as usual. This can be used daily or as a leave-in conditioner for thicker, drier curl types.

Our Review 

Color: Like a beige/white
Scent: Resembles a cabinet spice mixture or an herbal mix
Texture/Consistency: Thick and creamy like butter though not slippery
Cost: $16.95 per 8 oz 

So the first thing i noticed was the incredible thickness, this has to be one of the thickest products we have used. The color was different than what we have normally tried but as with all products color varies.  The scent was nice and different, i personally like herbal scents and infusions. I will say that as i was applying this i didn't know what to expect and it became apparent that it was super thick and this lead me to believe that it make take several cups of water to ensure that it is rinsed out completely as i chose to use this as a rinse out conditioning treatment. This proved to be true. So far i was impressed. So after Diva R got out of the bath i squeeze dried her hair with my CLEAN hands to drain the excess water then i ran my fingers through her hair to see the level of tangles present and also to observe the resulting elements.  

So immediately i found that her curls were nice and elongated! My fingers just slid through her hair with maximum ease, not a tangle in sight and her hair smelled so lightly and nice like a fresh fusion of herbal/organic bits of heaven. I LOVED the scent for sure then!

The pictures of her curls afterwards are also pre-moisturizer and as you can tell her curls were elongated but not for long. Her curls began to shrink right away BUT i wasn't displeased because her hair was evidently full of healthy condition and it also retained a great amount of moisture even after being rinsed.  The texture of her hair afterwards was very soft and her curls had a nice spring to them. YAY was my thought. Overall i was pleased with this deep conditioner so i decided to pull up Jessicurls site and check it out a bit more and i was intrigued and curious about a few other products that i had seen.  One thing that shocked me was the price but its not too far off from most other products out there. I noticed that Jessi Curl isn't sold locally either. The ingredients weren't completely pleasing but hey what can i say it was a free sample and not all that bad to try anyways, Ive seen tons that are terrible and i wouldn't say this product is close to terrible. The sample pack that i received was only 1 application so this review is off of one application. If i had more i would probably keep it around and make use of it <3
